La Lluvia y la Sequía

La Lluvia y la Sequía



"La Lluvia y la Sequía" is a field recording sound collage in which Christopher Luna-Mega explores the intrusion of the urban in the rural, drought, rain, and a week in the lives of a San Joaquín Valley ranch, in Central Valley, CA. "La Lluvia y la Sequía" continues Luna-Mega’s career-long trajectory of utilizing environmental sound as a primary component of musical fabric, both in orchestral-instrumental and electronic media. Different techniques of microphone recording, sound processing, instrumental performance, and collage are combined to create an intimate portrait of a place, both stark and inviting. Commissioned by the Rural Situationism record label.
